    Timing chain

    Hi, if it sounds rattley, it's more likely to be the chain tensioner shoe that's worn. At 251k, km's or 150k miles, I would expect something worn. Run your engine and carefully put a long screwdriver point on the timing chain cover, and the handle end to your ear. you'll hear anything going on in there.😃

    Hi, I bought for wife's Yaris from e bay, £240, complete with Sat Nav aerial and connectors. I fitted it myself, (you might need adapter plate). Then on My Toyota register it.( should get fitting instructions also).. Fitting was easy enough, but I don't know about CHR.. By the way I was quoted £800, so a good saving.
  4. Shuan Hi, They should just prise out. When you look at them, there should be a tiny slot one one edge, flick them out using a thin screwdriver or plastic trim tool.
  5. Hi, it sounds like you've got a short circuit somewhere. It might be down to damp weather. Try and do a longer run (than school run) with the recirc selected and warm air or A/C selected.
  6. Hi, it's fuse #1, 10 amp. I'd check each fuse box as I'm not sure which model etc you have. If the fuse is OK I'd check the wiring through tailgate hinge area.
  7. RoanneO Hi, Is the door lock frozen?? Try warming the key with a cigarette lighter, and put key into door lock. Heat transfer action takes place and an ANTI-clockwise twist should unlock things. Good Luck
  8. Flash 22 hi, does it ever get that cold down in the SE corner of Kent??? You should try out Aberdeen. 🎅⛷️🏂
  9. Mike, All the best for Christmas & New Year. Thanks for your help.☝️⛷️
  10. Hi, I'm with Flash22. It certainly seems to be a bad earth.
  11. Hi, just fitted new one to SWMBO's car (after some one nicked original). As you say line up the lower edge and it then just clips in. check the edge nearest to door, and check the indicator repeater is positioned correctly. Check you have right part via Toyota spares deInsert other media pt.
  12. Hi, the metal spring should hook onto the inside of the frame to spring it back into place when dislodged. The back of the actual mirror should have a ring of clips on the back side, which snap into the mirror holder. If the frame is damaged you might be better off at a 'scrappie' and replace the whole assembly.

    PCV Valve

    Hafnia Hi, As far as I understand, you remove the vent hose, and it should unscrew from the crankcase.Try using a strap wrench (Oil Filter removal tool) if you can't get your hand or Goose Neck Pliers to it.
  14. Mick F Hi,If you understand how an 'Epicyclic' gear works you have your answer. The Ring gear is driven via the Planetary gears by the Sun gear and vice versa. One side either Ring or Sun drives the wheels. Therefore when the wheels turn they will turn the attached gear (say the Ring), which will then spin the Planetary gears and keep the Sun gear turning. That's also how you can charge the battery going downhill. There's a 'You Tube' clip that explains it , albeit on an Auris, but the Yaris is the same idea.
  15. Hi, the Yaris is a front wheel drive car. Even if you select 'N' the drive wheels will still turn the 'Epicyclic' gear. You have to lift the front wheels off the ground to tow for any distance or above 10mph. Lift front wheels and release the Handbrake and away you go. You can lift the wheels onto a 'Dolly' if required.
